Accenture, Gurgaon : Mass walk-ins but not interviewing candidates

Forwarded by Venkat
I recently had this experience with Accenture. I got a call from a consultant and was asked to appear for an interview in Accenture, Gurgaon. I went for the interview only to find that there are already a huge crowd waiting outside the office gate since the past 3-4 hours. There was no provision to sit, the place where the candidates were waiting was the area in front of the lift, without even a fan, forget an AC. The place was suffocating. And after waiting for such a long time, we were told to fill up a form with our details and that they will contact us later. I never received a call.

They might have as well asked us to just send our profiles over email! Whats the point? And these companies call themselves global fortune 500 companies!!!

I guess companies no longer look at employees as brand ambassadors! They just look at them as a shelf product that they can buy and sell when they want rather than looking at them as living people!


  1. Accenture laying off lot of people. currently they have 2500 people are in bench and no projects in USA . All the projects were outsourcing and they were asking them to re-locate or leave the company .It is nor rumors

  2. Yes , Accenture NY and Accenture Texas laid off 500 consultant last week . if leave the company you will get 8 weeks of pay other wise you will get 2 weeks of pay . They also laid of some of the Senior exec in detorit area. Some of the companies sued Accenture


  3. Beware dont join Accebture in SAP ,they have laid a lot of SAP consultant in NY after using them for years be aware guys,I my self has been laid of even after a great performance this company is just like any small consulting they just brag.They raelly dont have SAP projects so i will request you not to join if you are an SAP consultant

  4. I am not sure why you are so tensed about that walk in interview. I think you have been either laid off recently and try to get another job through that walk in interview and since you couldn't get through the job so you showed your frustration...
